The Co-operative Childcare Madley Park

Madley Park, Northfield Farm Lane, Witney OX28 1UD

The Co-operative Childcare Madley Park has specific rooms for different aged children, full of age appropriate resources catering to the needs of babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers.

The older children are able to freely access the garden area from their room at any time, and carers encourage them to make their own decisions on where they would like to play.

The nursery has its own garden area that allows the children to play outside all year round. One section of the garden has been designed as a beach, giving the children the freedom to explore and experiment with texture and volume.

There is a dedicated, loyal team of 24 colleagues who help children to have the best start in life in a bright and modern nursery setting.

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 18 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.397 for The Co-operative Childcare Madley Park is calculated as follows: ( (178 Excellents x 5) + (119 Goods x 4) + (31 Satisfactorys x 3) + (7 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 335 Ratings = 4.397

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Co-operative Childcare Madley Park is based on 18 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 14 positive Reviews (70 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 18 Reviews ÷ 14 Target Reached = 1

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

I would highly recommend Co-operative Childcare Madley Park. In my experience, my son has been very well taken care of and every measure to safeguard him has been taken. The menu is varied and nutritionally beneficial. The use of parent zone sets me at ease as it is regularly updated and I am able to track my son's eating and learning process. I am never left wondering how well my son ate or what he has been up to. My son has gone from strength to strength under the wings of his key persons and the rest of the staff at Madley Park.

My daughter has been at the nursery since she was 9 months old and has progressed through each room. All the staff are polite and helpful and take excellent care of my daughter. The new app is a great way of seeing how she is getting on and what she’s eaten etc and the observations of her progress are fantastic to see pop up on my phone. I love seeing the photos of her playing and learning with her friends.

My daughter loves going to nursery and has an absolutely great time. The staff are friendly and helpful. The new addition of the Parentzone app is fantastic and means I get updates of her day and pictures of what she has been doing, Great nursery, I have recommended to a friend! Keep up the good work.

I am extremely satisfied with this nursery, my son has always been extremely happy here since he started at ten months old, the practitioners here are loving, caring and go out of their way to ensure my son's needs are met. He has made lots of friends and talks so fondly about the staff who look after him. I couldn't have picked a better nursery for my son to attend, and couldn't recommend it enough to others.

I have two children in the nursery and have always been happy with the level of care my children receive, the openness and flexibility of the nursery. In particular, the staff are amazing, approachable and helpful. The early years learning is great and there is an opportunity for feedback and parent involvement as well which is particularly helpful.

The staff are friendly, approachable and understanding. They have a fantastic knowledge of the children in their care and are always able to provide advice to parents when needed.
My children enjoy attending this nursery and have built up great relationships with the staff and peers alike. They are actively encouraged to develop their personal, social and emotional aspects and flourish within this setting.

Madley Co-op is a good nursery with friendly staff and excellent catering, plus good outdoor space. The staff turnover lets the nursery down.

My son is always happy to get to nursery and is sad to leave at the end of the day! The staff are caring and professional at all times and the handovers and information provided throughout the day are always full of detail.
The food is always varied and my son often has seconds!

All I wanted from a nursery was a safe environment where my son would be cared for so I could return to work. The early years program has exceeded my expectations. I believe my son's social skills are far greater than they would have been if I had been able to give up work to care for him.

They have been very warm and welcoming to my daughter who recently started in October 2017.
They have also helped in putting a plan in place for my daughter's father.
I also find the parent zone a brilliant extension to the communication given, it is great to see what my daughter gets up to when I’m not around.

My little boy has loved going to the nursery from day one. The staff are brilliant and very friendly and caring and have really helped me track his progress at times when I have been worried that he is not developing as much as he should be. The manager of the nursery is excellent and seem's to genuinely care about all of the children and this makes such a difference.

The nursery provides great care with genuine attention to the individual needs of my child to ensure that they have a positive experience at nursery and develop to the best of their potential. I feel confident that he is benefiting from being at nursery and that should any issues arise the nursery will be proactive in raising these and working to address these with us as parents.

Having looked at a number of nurseries in the local area, this one was by far the best.
The rooms are full of colour and age-appropriate toys to enhance development. Each day I drop my son off there are different activities set up.
The staff have all been extremely professional and available. My son's keyworker was amazing, really supportive and listened to my wishes. It was a difficult time for me personally leaving my baby at first but the staff made the transition very smooth for me. The staff are all very caring and gentle (I only have experience with the baby rooms).

My son loves it there. When I drop him off in the morning the other children all seem to be very settled and happy too. The set up is organised and nursery appears to be very clean.

My son is half Portuguese and to accommodate his needs the staff wrote Portuguese words for him and put them in the room to label objects. This was a very individualised approach and much appreciated.

I recommend the nursery.

We are very pleased with the care our son receives here. He is learning so much and the staff is extremely caring and knows him, his needs and quirks in and out. When he is on a break and we walk by the nursery, he tries to pull us towards the door and wants to go in to play. He also loves the food and eats even more than at home.

It is quite expensive, but you can see with all the material they use for learning and playing as well as the activities where the money goes. We definitely recommend this nursery.

I have had bad experiences with the management, being requested to hang around in the morning because staff are running late - not great when it means you're late for work/have a train to catch. At times the invoices are incorrect so need observing/checking and administrator is not in every day.

The staff who care for the children are excellent, I couldn't wish for a happier child and the development had been outstanding since starting here. Overall, I would recommend this nursery. Minor complaints but most of the time I couldn't wish for more for my child.

Our daughter has always been very happy here. The children get plenty of opportunities for outdoor play in almost all weathers, which I think is important. The staff are very friendly and caring, and were happy to accommodate my wishes for my daughter to use our own cloth nappies and to eat fruit rather than the occasional puddings the children are given (the food appears to be very good!). My only slight issue has been some confusion in communication with management.

My daughter is in ladybird room and really enjoys it. She only started in Jan 2017, but the staff are lovely and have helped her settle in well. They do a good range of activities during the day and my daughter always comes home exhausted, so I know she's had fun!

My little girl had a negative experience at a previous nursery and was really upset and distressed about going to nursery at all. I made the decision to move her to the Co-op nursery as my niece attends a different one, but has had such a great experience there.
After my daughter started it took a little while for her to enjoy attending but with such a great support network and a reassuring team of assistants and staff she absolutely loves it now which I didn't think was possible. I am incredibly impressed with the communication and professionalism and with how helpful everyone is. Thank you very much.

I can not fault the Co-operative nursery at Madley Park.
My child loves attending (part time), her confidence has soared, she is growing and developing in all areas, which I believe the staff at the nursery have had a direct impact upon.
They provide meals that are well thought out and balanced.
There is regular and open contact from the managers, as well as the staff working directly with the children being friendly and approachable.

I took my child out in December 2016 for a number of reasons including cleanliness and care of my child and lots of staff changes including agency staff. My child was allowed at 2 to go to dirty toilets on her own and often came home with soiled knickers and when I told a member of staff they didn't care.
